The Goatskin Snap-back work gloves by Geier are the go-to gloves in the Gramercy shop. We use 'em for everything, but especially for abrasive tasks like buffing and grinding metal. The guys in the shop are stoked at how much more comfortable they are working all day in these gloves vs. the imported ones we used to use.
Long a favorite leather for top quality TIG welding gloves, goatskin delivers a mix of dexterity and durability that can't be beat. As with all of Geier's gloves, the fit is phenomenal and only gets better with wear. The medium weight tannery run leather strikes the perfect balance between protecting your hand and preserving feel for your work. We think the golden hue of the leather looks great with a little dirt on it.
The snap-back closure is straightforward and functional, and most importantly, won't get in your way. Snapped closed the glove fits without fuss under the sleeve of your jacket.
Like all of Geier's gloves, the Goatskin Snap-back work glove, is made for actual work, but something about it's work-first mentality, and quality build, strike us as quite fashionable.
Made in the USA from unlined tannery run goatskin leather.
Measuring your glove size:
Measure around the widest part of your palm excluding your thumb.
For a REGULAR FIT
add 1/2" to your measurement. This is your unlined glove size.
For a RELAXED FIT
add 1" to your measurement.
For a PERFORMANCE FIT
(snug fit) simply use the measurement in inches. Please note that a performance fit is intended to feel snug, and over time the high quality leather will form to your hand.
For LINED GLOVES
add 1 to 1-1/2" to the measurement.
If you are left handed, measure your left hand, if you are right handed, measure your right hand.
Also please note - Geier makes performance oriented gloves from high quality leathers. They are designed to fit more snugly than many gloves, and will form to fit your hand over time. Dexterity will come as the leather molds itself to your hand - providing a personalized fit that you won't find in any where else.
Geier has been making gloves in Centralia, Washington since 1927. Their long history of attention to detail shines through in the superior fit and finish of their products.
Geier uses several grades of leather, but none that would compromise the wear or durability of their gloves.
Tannery Run leather is perfect for work gloves. The best, and poorest hides are graded out leaving leather suitable for grain (hair) side cutting. Typically leather of this grade will exhibit some scarring or marking. Under no circumstances is the wearing quality of the glove affected.
Select leather is the clearest leather available. Wild animal hides such as deer or elk are never perfect, however imperfections are kept to minimum.
Reverse (Suede) leather will typically have numerous scars, marks and blemishes. For this reason, the leather is used flesh (suede) side out. Again, under no circumstances is the wearing quality, or durability of the glove compromised.
Geier gloves are made to last, and will become even more comfortable with age. Kept dry, the natural oils from your skin will keep them soft and comfortable. Air-dry wet gloves; although they may stiffen, they will soon soften back up with use.
